Yvonne is so grateful for the fantastic work of composer Elizabeth Rudolph, who has set Yvonne’s poetry for violin, piano, and soprano. The first live concert performance of four songs, from Yvonne’s poem Me Gustaría Hablar, was performed Tuesday, October 16th, 2018 in “Finding Home, Finding Self: The Music of Elizabeth Rudolph” in Chicago. The video features Meghan Guse (Soprano), Alex Norris (Violin), and Jordan Crice (Piano).
